Dendritic cells (DC) capture immune complexes (IC) via Fc receptors for immunoglobulin G FcgammaRII and elicit antigen presentation and protective antitumoral immune response in mice. Two protocols are commonly used to differentiate human monocyte-derived DC in vitro. They associate granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (CM-CSF) with interleukin(More)
Chronic ingestion of environmental heavy metals such as lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) causes various well-documented pathologies in specific target organs following their intestinal absorption and subsequent accumulation. However, little is known about the direct impact of the non-absorbed heavy metals on the small intestine and the colon homeostasis. The aim(More)
In non-small cell lung cancer patients (NSCLC), median survival from the time patients develop bone metastasis is classically described being inferior to 6 months. We investigated the subcategory of patients having an inaugural skeletal-related-event revealing NSCLC. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of bone involvement on overall survival(More)
Although the heavy metals cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) are known environmental health concerns, their long-term impacts on gut ecology and susceptibility to gastrointestinal autoimmune diseases have not been extensively investigated. We sought to determine whether subchronic oral exposure to Cd or Pb is a risk factor for the development and progression of(More)
Gut microbiota plays a key role in the maintenance of homeostasis and host physiology, comprising development, metabolism, and immunity. Profiling the composition and the gastrointestinal microbiome with a reliable methodology is of substantial interest to yield new insights into the pathogenesis of many diseases as well as defining new prophylactic and(More)
Many tumors are hierarchically organized with a minority cell population that has stem-like properties and enhanced ability to initiate tumorigenesis and drive therapeutic relapse. These cancer stem cells (CSCs) are typically identified by complex combinations of cell-surface markers that differ among tumor types. Here, we developed a flexible(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim was to describe the Psychiatric Assessment and Planning Unit (PAPU), established at the Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH) to improve access to psychiatric care for patients presenting via the Emergency Department (ED). METHOD PAPU was opened in January 2007. Data was recorded from RMH ED databases to compare ED lengths of stay (LOS) prior(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) capture immune complexes (ICs) via Fc receptors for immunoglob-ulin G (Fc␥R)II and elicit antigen presentation and protective antitumoral immune response in mice. Two protocols are commonly used to differentiate human monocyte-derived DCs in vitro. They associate granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor with interleukin (IL)-4(More)
